When Trent Reznor scored The Social Network last year he released the score for a low price of $4 the day before it was scheduled to hit shelves. This time, Reznor’s one-upped himself by releasing a major portion of his score for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for free.
Reznor posted his thoughts on the score just this morning:
For the last fourteen months Atticus and I have been hard at work on David Fincher’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”. We laughed, we cried, we lost our minds and in the process made some of the most beautiful and disturbing music of our careers. The result is a sprawling three-hour opus that I am happy to announce is available for pre-order right now for as low as $11.99. The full release will be available in one week – December 9th.
You have two options right now:
VIsit iTunes here where you can immediately download Karen O’s and our version of Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” when you pre-order the soundtrack for $11.99. You will also be able to exclusively watch the legendary 8-minute trailer you may have heard about (no purchase necessary obviously). We scored this trailer separately from the film, BTW.
Visit our store here. We’re offering a variety of purchasing options including multiple format high-quality digital files, CDs and a really nice limited edition deluxe package containing vinyl and a flash drive. In addition, RIGHT NOW you can download a six-track, 35 minute sampler with no purchase necessary.
Live the dream and visit both! Atticus and I are very proud of the film and our work, we hope you enjoy.
I’ve listened to the free samples and watched the trailer, and I can’t tell you how excited I am for this flick to come out.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo hits screens on December 21st, 2011.
